The Petco Foundation is making Holiday Wishes come true!

2015 Holiday Wishes Grant Campaign, in partnership with Halo Purely for Pets

At the Petco Foundation we believe love changes everything. That's why, in partnership with our friends at Halo, we're thrilled to bring back our popular Holiday Wishes grant campaign.

This year's Holiday Wishes campaign is focused on great stories submitted by adopters about how the love of their adopted pet changed their lives!

From October 1 – 31, adopters can spread the love and make Holiday Wishes come true for the organization that they adopted from and give that organization the opportunity to receive a grant award of up to $100,000. And, if the animal welfare organization is awarded the top $100,000 grant, Halo Purely for Pets will provide a year's supply of dog or cat food to the adopter.

Holiday Wishes grants will be awarded to animal welfare organizations in the following amounts:

  • Grand Prize award - $100,000
  • 2 grants - $50,000 each;
  • 5 grants - $25,000 each;
  • 10 grants - $10,000 each; and
  • 15 grants - $5,000 each

Are you ready to help the Petco Foundation and Halo make Holiday Wishes come true?

Submit your story

Animal welfare organizations (non-profit and municipal or government organizations), promote the Holiday Wishes grant campaign in your community and encourage your adopters to submit a story and help you win a $100,000 grant award.

Use these sample social media posts, cover photos, emails, and news releases to help you promote the campaign with your supporters.

The Petco Foundation will accept all stories submitted during the campaign. However, due to timing of the contest and review requirements, we can only guarantee that the first 10,000 stories will be fully reviewed and considered for the grant campaign. We encourage all to enter stories in the Holiday Wishes campaign early to assure due consideration.
